Journal.Bar —A Metasystem Experiment
It gets easier. Every day it gets a little easier. But you gotta do it every day, that’s the hard
part. But it does get easier. —Bojack Horseman
Week Thirty-one! Another rather quiet week. I have to say, autumn is my favorite year, but I always find it more difficult to be productive as the days get shorter and colder. But that seems to be rather universal. More specifically I’m finding it a lot easier to be productive at night than during the day, and I’m not sure why that is.
Also, for morning pages, have you considered 750words.com? There’s cool “don’t break the chain” UI! –@mtrazzi
Ah, I’ve actually been using 750words since 2011, crazy how time flies! I actually wrote an article on my experience using it since I’m such a big fan. I’d say it definitely needs an update.
Speaking of updates, Fitbit just added “Mindfulness” as a new trackable category, I hope it gets its own API. That would make beeminding meditation a practical possibility for me.
Another thing, I disappointingly realized that Draftin doesn’t allow changes to the default deadline of 12am, for whatever reason. (Same with GitMinder, Twitter, and Fitbit) I’m sure if I checked the docs there’d an explanation. That just means that I need to find a different way to track my morning writing, which I’m sure won’t be difficult to figure out.
I’ve been thinking of starting a couple new Beeminders, one for Project Euler since I already have a repository for code challenges. And another for Clozemaster to supplement my French, although I run into the embarrassing issue of not knowing what to name it! (/french2, /clozemaster, /new-french?)
P.S. Anybody having issues with IFTTT recently? It didn’t update /jobs at all yesterday and I was getting 500 errors. I had to enter dummy data to avoid derailing but it seems to have sorted itself out today.
